[deleted post]what future and what present :S, as far as everyone is concerned, this is a N8 thread. if you want to chat out of subject, the internet is FULL of other more suitable places/threads..
no one cares if there is a good nokia in the market atm, or isnt(and even if, this aint the right thread for it), what matters is, the N8, and we'll all see how good/bad it would be..
spec wise, it just pawns most of the mobiles out there, wether present or the near future.. its the MANY small functions that counts, not one big gun..
-apple appstore alone wont cut it for me
-super Amoled +2 wont
-a slightly more attractive OS, or in other words, more user friendly(for noobs that is).. wont do either
what else is there that the N8 dont have? hmm? hmm?
please dont mention the processor, stop beating the dead dog of an argument already..
the N8 will prosper with its many many functions and instabilities, and its THREE big guns ,awesome GPU, unique camera and low price(if 370 euros) .. people will mainly buy it for the hardware.
lets not forget qt, programmers will rush again to Symbian^3 if the N8 sells...
people will buy it for its Specs, its one of the rare phones that HW>SW .. (my speculation of course)
only limitation i didnt like about the N8, is Dual led, i dont care about video recording(Dual led isnt that strong anyways), but using dual led as a flashlight is really handy :(..
Would be having hands on Wave next week. Not much thrilled though, when I went through reviews out there by critics as well users, I found there are atleast 15 concerning bugs in OS. Samsung might fix them later but at this moment, Wave is pretty immature. Please there are few shortcome like very limited number of applications and touch wiz still there layerd on Bada.
Samsung might be loosing it if they can't set things OK before N8.
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010My smart buddy, you did not read my post earlier...OTG is a updated technology of what O2 flam... moreMy friend sure it drain battery fast. But how fast..? I dont think if you connect any phone to N8 for five minute it will drain all the battery.. And you know there are lots of Android phones suffer from battery problem even if they have 1500 mAh. For example X10. It cant even get a full day standby in moderate usage. Ask Tom how much he charge his phone. And I think you know that many people have got N8 for testing purpose. And according to them N8 can survive 1.5 day when bluetooth was on and phone was online all the time. Its a great achievement. So my friends dont see only numbers. See the real facts what I usually says. Come up with some real facts. Good luck.
Bingo, 02 Jun 2010Too bad it is Symbian. Old OS, not designed for touchscreen even if they try to improve it. No... moreMate, you might be new here so giving you the benefit of the doubt, let me explain again since your concerns have been addressed many times over in these pages. The Symbian name is old but the OS running on the N8 is Symbian^3. If you are not familiar, that's the latest OS completely re-written from scratch and meant to be optimized not only for touchscreen phones but especially for touch/keypad hybrid units.
And your second point, Nokia is late to the market. In an oddly ironic way you are somewhat right but your statement can't be any wronger. Nokia first introduce touchscreen mobiles with the 7700 in 2003, another in 2004 and then 2005. Problem is instead of pushing it further in an lukewarm market, their touch screen took a back seat until after a three years gap, 5800 came running along.

The Nokia 7710 was a very good phone at the time and I almost got my hands on one but was afraid the platform, the ultra-uber Symbian Series 90 would not be supported for long. I ended up getting a 6630 and being right.
[deleted post]I was thinking and thinking which one is better. I conclusion
1) super Amoled +2
2) fast processer +1
3) great video player +1
1) Design and colors +1
2) true multitasking +1
3) applications (there are plenty of applications what I want for symbian) +1
4) far far more specs +3
5) xenon flash +1
and now price
Samsung wave in India 25k and N8 is also 25-26 k. So you tell me, which is better choice.
BADA is nothing. touchwiz sucks. its useless! BADA is BADlooking! go buy wave and go surf the sea and dont come back.

Basically its a 3 year old technology refined by Nokia...but the major drawback in N8 is going to be its battery which only max out at 1200 mAH
n8 is the best in photography and rest!
who said nokia have lost the market share last year? are u thinking? it just decreased by about 1-2% well that isn't a big lost. even with that. nokia is still number 1! i know they'll be more powerful when n8 will hit the shelves soon.
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010You are talking about future...I am talking about the present...and its a fact Nokia is far be... moreTalk about N8. This post is for N8 not about technology. Well sure in technologies like hd video Nokia is behind. But can you name any device which has or usb otg..? Vivaz and Satio only centered on camera point. In rest they fails. You should know. One thing dont make a good phone. N8 has all the specs.
[deleted post]You are talking about future...I am talking about the present...and its a fact Nokia is far behind in technology in comparision to SE and Samsung...thats why to prove it I gave examples of Satio and Vivaz...Future, we dont know but present Nokia is much behind...If you say in future Nokia will do this and will do that...thats misleading people as there is no proof to what you are saying...whereas I have spoken about today and proved my points by way of examples...You are misleading people
Have just got reply from GSMarena team that they would be keeping eye on N8 section more frequently and would be talking strict action against guys messing around here.
It is the last chance for Nokia. If they don't get it right and make another cheap looking, poorly built phone full of bugs like their last phones, other phone makers will jump ahead, and even Nokia fans will be fed up and buy other brands. Wait and see...

After some time of eye candy ness people will realize how good the ui of symbian^3 is. Sure it dont have eye candy ness but its easy to use and you can do your most of the tasks direct from home screen..
Personally i do not like spb mobile shell, it runs at the background and its ui is not easy to use. I return to non theme in my nokia mini n97
Too bad it is Symbian. Old OS, not designed for touchscreen even if they try to improve it. Nokia reacted too late because they did not believe in touchscreens and did not had time to make a new OS. Better use something made from scratch like Android or now even Bada.
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010If thats what you have to say, that means if today I want to buy a phone, Nokia has nothing to... moreThere is N900 is also which you are not mentioning.. N8 has all thing what a user want. Nokia has dare to survive in the market with symbian. All other competitors are using the name of Android to make profit..
Rajesh, 02 Jun 2010If thats what you have to say, that means if today I want to buy a phone, Nokia has nothing to... moreDont you understand in N8 is the first phone from Nokia to reclaim their market share. Nokia will release more new gadget in few months. Just wait and see if Nokia can give N8 like device in just 370 euro then what will they give in 500 euros.. Trolling and trolling from you. Have you check the N97 mini..? Though it have not much special but for a normal person which dont mind eye candy N97mini is great device. With new firmware N97 (main) is also "not bad at all" but not to good. Tell me what thing N8 dont have in 370 euros..?
Niraj, 02 Jun 2010Today today today no Nokia can have same specs like Vivaz and Satio but Tomorrow Tomorrow No p... moreIf thats what you have to say, that means if today I want to buy a phone, Nokia has nothing to offer ( only what Nokia can promise as you said is a better tomorrow in form of N8 ). So Now my dear Niraj, this has been the case since last 2 years. Nokia has always been slow and behind its competitors and thats why they lost a huge market share last year...If you say N8 will be the best gadget when its available, I can only say LETS HOPE SO. But its so sad as Nokia has always have faithfull consumers like you and still they have not achieved what they should have in past few years.
